scaled this building to make a point. a stunt on a san francisco high-rise, why "skyscraperman" scaled this building to make a point. crews still cleaning up an oil sheen stretching two miles on the petaluma river. good morning. it's tuesday, september 7. i'm john kessler. >> i'm sydnie kohara. good morning, everyone. let's get you out the door and take a quick look at traffic and weather before you head out on the roads after a long holiday weekend. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning. san rafael, they just opened a couple of minutes ago all lanes of southbound 101 approaching sir frances drake boulevard. fire crews have been out there since 4:00 a.m. working a small brush fire but right now the fire is
6:01am
contained. all lanes are open. a fire truck was blocking the right lane for the last hour or so. small delays out of san rafael. the bay bridge toll plaza, traffic light this morning heading into san francisco for your back to work and school commute. that's your traffic. let's get another update on your forecast with lawrence. >> all right, elizabeth. big changes around the bay area today. of course we have plenty of that summer sunshine yesterday, high pressure overhead. but now a trough of low pressure diving into the bay area. this is going to mean some major cooling all around maybe as much as 20 degrees cooler today, maybe 30 degrees cooler as we head in towards wednesday. looks like these temperatures struggling to get into the 80s throughout the warmer spots. that patchy fog is moving along the coast and winds kick in throughout the day. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. the man arrested for shooting an east bay police officer last month has a date to see a judge today. anne makovec is in oakland, where andrew barrientos is scheduled to be arraigned. >> reporter: police say they
6:02am
caught him trying to cross the border into mexico a little over a week and a half ago and today he finally has a date in the alameda county superior court here behind me. andrew barrientos was flown back to the bay area last thursday from san diego where he was arrested in august. todd young a 30-year-old officer from fremont was severely wounded trying to serve barrientos with a warrant in oakland. young remains hospitalized. barrientos is charged with 10 felonies including attempted murder. he could face life in prison if convicted. now, there is one positive though that's come out of all of this. a huge outpouring of community support that's led to a 50% increase in blood donations over the past week and a half. that's according to the red cross. officer young needed several transfusions during surgeries on his stomach and bladder and people all over the bay area have been lining up to replenish the supplies. four east bay centers were even open on labor day yesterday to
6:03am
accommodate those volunteers. now, there is going to be a blood drive today at the santa rosa police department from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. that address is 965 sonoma avenue. so definitely good news for the red cross, who were just able to declare an end to the blood shortage that they announced on august 21st. but they want to remind everybody that donated blood has a shelf life of a little over a month. so hopefully all these new donors will continue to keep coming back. sydnie? >> all right, anne. anne makovec in oakland. volunteers and police will be back out again today at the pittsburg landfill looking for clues in the disappearance of a man from hercules. a fourth straight day of searching that landfill yesterday turned up nothing. 35-year-old frederick sales hasn't been seen sis his fare was found murdered in the home they rented from the girlfriend of efren valdemoro. valdemoro suspected of killing the elder sales, valdemoro's
6:04am
girlfriend and two vallejo women. police killed valdemoro after a high-speed chase. oakland police are investigating two shootings. the first was early yesterday afternoon on altamont avenue on the scene's east side. the second happened at about 11:00 p.m. last night in west oakland. it was near the intersection of west and 36th streets. there is no indication of any suspects in either case. and no word on the victims' conditions. two men working to recycle an old tugboat are blamed for an oil spill in petaluma river. firefighters say the men sliced the boat open and as much as 600 gallons of oil spilled out. booms were set out to control an oil seen this covered about two miles of the river near the downtown area. boat traffic was halted in the area because of the spill. >> there was still what appears to be bunker oil inside the boat so they cut through the hole, let the bunker oil out into the water, and that's where we are getting our
6:05am
release from. it's unbelievable. >> fire crews say they have contained most of that oil. the two men who scrapped boat now have to hire a private company at their own expense to clean it up. and they could also face criminal charges. >> all he had were suction cups and an american flag. 54-year-old dan goodwin from north lake tahoe climbed the millennium tower in san francisco 58 stories up a glass building. why? the answer was in a press release he had left on the ground. it said he wanted to raise awareness about cancer and the threat of terrorism. >> i just felt like it was my moral obligation to do something about it because i feel our country is really vulnerable to another attack and that's why i climb. hey, look, i'm not a terrorist. don't worry about me, i'm not going to commit suicide. this is -- this is about something much higher than that. i'm doing it for all the cancer survivors out there, all the people fighting for cancer. i wanted to be the rallying
6:06am
call. >> the millennium tower is a luxury condo building. goodwin received two misdemeanor citations and he says he going to climb again, you be wouldn't say where. let's get another check of traffic and weather. elizabeth, how's it looking? >> chopper 5 is with us now. and they are showing us how great it looks across the richmond/san rafael bridge. they are heading west to the scene of that earlier brush fire out of san rafael. it was reported southbound 101 at sir francis drake. fire crews were blocking lanes at 4:00. as you can sees across the span of the bridge out of richmond traffic is great. no issues. just behind the sound wall near sir francis drake boulevard. we got off the phone with the chief of the fire department and the fire is out. fire crews are off to the shoulder but no longer blocking any lanes. out to the san mateo bridge, everything looks great.
6:07am
14 minutes in the commute direction of westbound 92 towards the peninsula. that's your traffic. here's lawrence with your forecast. >> temperatures really cooling down outside around the bay area, elizabeth. good old low clouds and fog starting to make its way back onshore. you see some of those patches sneaking inside the bay now but all along the coastline more of that throughout the day today. and looks like the coming days ahead as those temperatures will continue to cool down a bit. clear start though in some of the interior valleys. partly cloudy with patches of fog inside the bay. mostly cloudy at the coastline with the fog. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. today we'll struggle to get into the low 80s in the warmest spots. lots of sunshine. more of a sea breeze inside the bay will keep temperatures cooler, 90s even inside the bay but today 70s and 60s. at the coast, low clouds and fog, breezy, and low clouds and fog continue all day long. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. >> thank you. a crucial vote tonight in

chopper 5 has made it to sir francis drake where fire crews are working a small brush fire for the past couple of hours behind the sound walled. it's a nonissue traffic wise. fire crews have left the scene. everything is flowing nicely heading towards larkspur. but yeah, they were blocking the right lane so they could mop up the scene. but they did leave about 5 minutes ago. slower traffic areas. altamont pass westbound 3580 slow going right now on westbound 58 from the altamont pass to the dublin interchange. 18 minutes. we have an accident grant line and then another one off to the shoulder as you approach the dublin interchange. at the bay bridge toll plaza, no metering lights and only seeing small delays in a few of the cash lanes. no big backups yesterday.

a lot of people are heading back to work this morning after a long holiday weekend. 880 great up the nimitz freeway by the coliseum. the taillights that's northbound traffic in the commute direction. heading towards high street. so far, 15 minutes now up towards downtown oakland. remember our radio partners, kcbs 740-am and 106.9-fm. here's the forecast. >> we are seeing temperatures coming down all around the bay area. nice start to overlook san jose right now. clear skies through tonight we are going to see more clouds in that direction. already seeing clouds at the coast and inside the bay as it looks like we are in for a major cooldown outside. so we have some patchy fog through the golden gate and at the coast, still clear in the interior valleys. temperatures running in the 50s and 60s, somewhat similar start to what we had yesterday but by the afternoon, what a change in the temperatures. yesterday, we had 90s, hotspot
6:18am
showing up well inland. today we'll struggle to get into the lower 80s in the warmest spots. a lot of sunshine inside the bay but still cooler temperatures in the 60s and 70s. and out at the coastline, highs in the 50s and low 60s. low clouds and fog and breezy conditions outside. 93 san jose, 91 san rafael and 48 in san francisco. today we are looking at 18 degrees cooler in livermore, 16 degrees cooler in san jose, 19 degrees cooler in san rafael and check out san francisco. expecting the high of 63 degrees today. that is 21 degrees cooler than yesterday. it's all because of a wind switch. winds blowing offshore yesterday. today more onshore breeze carrying the cool air right off the water and bringing it onshore. 60s at the beaches here. you have some 70s inside the bay. still comfortable. but running below average. and these temperatures will continue to tumble not only today but into tomorrow. 70s, 80s, well inland, 60s at
6:19am
oakland, alameda and san leandro. north bay temperatures cooler all around the area as the temperatures will be affected by the sea breeze continuing on throughout the day. temperatures will continue to tumble through tomorrow. some place struggle to to get into the 70s by tomorrow afternoon. maybe slight warming into thursday and friday but cooling back down at least the first part of the next weekend. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. a 20-year-old newark man scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon for shooting hayward police officer todd young last month. andrew barrientos arrested near the mexican border. he says he did not know the person he shot in oakland was a police officer. officer young remains in serious condition. hundreds of gallons of oil spilling into the petaluma river from a tugboat. these are shots though of that man that basically climbed the millennium tower, dan goodwin. he says he did it, basically, uhm, he was raising awareness about cancer and calling attention to the threat of
6:20am
terrorism against america's skyscrapers. it is 6:19. a tahoe area man is receiving two misdemeanor citations, that was what sydnie was talking about there. want to take you down to uhm....... the kern river. san jose teen now safe after being overwhelmed by strong river currents. he got stuck on a rock on saturday. rescue cries tried to get him by boat but got him by helicopter. there was an ambulance waiting but he refused medical aid. probably cold and embarrassed. 6:20. why use drinking water to keep plants green? >> coming up the proposal to use recycled water in some bay area parks. today san francisco's water

6:25am

6:30am
condition this morning. his accused shooter has a date to see a judge today. anne makovec is in oakland, where the suspect will be arraigned. good morning, anne. >> reporter: good morning. that suspect is andrew barrientos and he has come a long way in the past week and a half from just near the border of mexico back here to alameda county court where he is going to face the music today. here's a picture of andrew barrientos in the back of a cop car down in san diego where he was caught just north of the mexican border around 15 feet, i'm told, according to police. he is 20 years old, an accused gang member. police say he has admitted to the shoeing fremont police officer todd young late last month as young was trying to serve a warrant on him but barrientos says he didn't know that young was a police officer. officer young is in serious condition in the hospital in oakland heavily sedated, stomach and bladder severely wounded. he has undergone several surgeries so far. that's where the one silver
6:31am
lining in this case comes in. so many people in the bay area were moved to donate blood in his name, the red cross has declared an end to the local blood shortage they announced last month. this was a blood drive last week at santa clara high school where young's wife works and his two kids go to school. there is going to be a blood drive today. this one at the santa rosa police department from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 965 sonoma avenue. the red cross is obviously very thankful for all the donation that have been coming in but they want to remind everybody that blood only has a shelf life of a little over a month so they are hoping all these new donors will continue to give in the months to come. they also want to remind folks that if you donate blood in officer young's name it's not necessarily going to him. thank you very much, mackinac oakland. >> today volunteers and police will be back at a pittsburg landfill looking for clues in
6:32am
the disappearance of a man from hercules. out fourth day of searching the landfill yesterday turned up nothing. 35-year-old frederick sales hasn't been seen since his father was found murdered in the home threatened from the girlfriend efron valdemoro. valdemoro is suspected of killing the elderly sales, valdemoro's own girlfriend and two vallejo women. police killed him after a high- speed chase. oakland police investigating two double shootings. in each case a man and a woman were rushed to hospitals. the first happened early yesterday afternoon on altamont avenue. the second happened about 11:00 last night in west oakland. it was near west and 36th streets. there is no indication of any suspects in either case and no word on the conditions of the victims. two men working to recycle and old tugboat are blamed for an oil spill in the petaluma river. they sliced the boat open and up to 600 gallons of oil spilled out. books were set out to control
6:33am
an oil sheen that covered two miles of the petaluma river. there was bunker oil inside the boat so they cut through the hole let the bunker oil out into the water and that's where we are getting our release from. they have to hire a private company at their expense cleaning it up and could face criminal charges. a tahoe man's labor day stunt lands him a day in court. the 54-year-old climbed the millennium tower in san francisco on the outside 58 stories straight up the glass building. why? the answer apparently in a press release that he left on the ground. it said that he wanted to raise awareness about cancer and about the threat of terrorism. >> i just felt like it was my moral obligation to do
6:34am
something about it because i feel that our country is vulnerable to attack. i'm not a terrorist. i won't commit suicide. this is about something much higher than that. i'm doing it for all the cancer survivors out there all the people fighting for cancer. i wanted to be the rallying call. >> the millennium tower is a luxury condo building. goodwin received two misdemeanor citations and he says he is going to climb again. but he wouldn't say where. >> let's see how normal people get to work. elizabeth has traffic. >> a lot of normal people are heading off to work or school or wherever you're off to today. so far, so good. if you are heading towards the bay bridge toll plaza, looks like the metering lights were just turned on a couple of minutes ago so we are seeing delays right there backed up to about the end of the parking lot right now and growing. get out quick. there you go. now you can see all the wait
6:35am
approaching the pay gates. metering lights are on. looks okay up the incline. accident in hayward southbound 880 approaching tennyson. we don't know about lanes blocked. we'll bring you that in a couple of minutes. in the meantime, let's check the forecast with lawrence. >> elizabeth no hot spots in weather today. we have a major cooldown that's beginning and starting to see low clouds and fog along the coastline. ocean beach yesterday a lot of sunshine, folks headed to the beach. not today. we have a cool, foggy day. more fog on the way. the cool temperatures will stretch all the way inland. numbers yesterday in the 90s. today we'll squeak out low 80s well inland. 72 in pleasanton. about 68 in oakland. and only 63 degrees in san francisco. you get the idea. you get that onshore breeze, temperatures really coming down. we are not done there just yet as we continue to cool things off through tomorrow with some partly cloudy skies everywhere, maybe some slight warming on thursday and into friday but another trough dives in come saturday and that will cool down your temperatures. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. >> thank you.
6:36am
tropical storm hermine is starting to lose steam as it hits parts of south texas. that storm has dumped five inches to a foot of rain in some areas. in one town on the coast, the storm ripped the roofs off several buildings and except for one block, the entire town is without power. a flash flood warning in effect in some areas but so far the worst is scattered street flooding. the only injury reported in texas so far a 5-year-old girl cut by broken glass. later this morning crews will try to get an accurate count on the number of homes destroyed by a wildfire in colorado. that fire is still burning out of control in a canyon northwest of boulder. the wind driven flames have forced people to evacuate 1,000 homes and dozens are believed destroyed. the fire started yesterday and spread across 5.5 square miles. crews have saved a historic town of gold hill, which includes some old stagecoach stops. so far there are no reports of
6:37am
injuries. some people tried to sneak back to their threatened homes with mixed results. >> i'll be back down near 20 minutes. my dog's in that house and i'm not going to let my dog burn. >> i got my dog, all my clothes, basically all the stuff in my room. >> the cause is still unclear. a local fire marshal says the flames are being fueled by dry pine trees left dead or dying by drought, disease and beating infestations. 6:36. just weeks ago, mark hurd left as chief executive officer of hewlett-packard amid a lot of controversy but now, he already has a new job at another silicon valley giant. >> matt bigler joins us now from kcbs radio's silicon valley bureau. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning. it was one month ago that mark hurd stunned the business world by his forced resignation from hp. and today, he is being hired as a co-president at oracle, the business software company. the question is why would
6:38am
oracle, a company that specializes in business software, want to hire a ceo who comes from a company that primarily makes computers and printers? well, oracle is expanding to business computer systems especially after acquiring sun micro systems. an expert says hp is probably nervous about their former ceo's new job at oracle. >> he clearly the not only understand's hp's strategy and sell, but he understands hp's customer base and has the ability to compete directly against hp. with this stronger position that he will help oracle build. >> of course, hurd left hp in the wake of a sexual harassment investigation that found that showed a profound lack of judgment. now, at the time, ellison the ceo of oracle wrote a letter to
6:39am
the "new york times" saying that, quote, hp had shown the worst personnel decision or made the worst personnel decision since the apple board fired steve jobs many years ago. i'm matt bigler live in san jose for cbs 5. >> thank you, matt. it's 6:39. what do you think? can money buy happiness? >> willing to give it a shot. >> the new study that says yes to a point. >> and california's governor headed to asia this week. the products they'll be promoting overseas. not that long ago, many families were priced out of an overheated housing market. but the times have changed. get the facts at remax.com. it's a great place to see all the listings in thousands of cities and towns. with lots of houses to chose from and down-to-earth prices the dream of owning a home seems more attainable than ever.

6:42am
>> good morning. chopper 5 still with us and they are heading out of san leandro showing us southbound traffic on 880 approaching marina heading towards 238. starting to get busy out there but so far we haven't really had a big hotspot. no big accidents to slow you down. a lot of cars. in fact, the metering lights were turned on earlier at the bay bridge than we have seen them turned on in several weeks. even several months from what i can remember. let's go to our maps show you where we actually had an earlier problem that's now cleared. this was southbound 880 approaching tennyson in hayward. kind of still a little slow in the area but the accident was quickly moved to the shoulder and if you are heading across the san mateo bridge westbound 92 is great in all direction between hayward and the peninsula. here's a look at the bay bridge
6:43am
toll plaza. the metering lights were turned on around 6:24 to be exact. so i haven't seen them turned on before 6:30 again in quite a while. so obviously a lot of people heading back to work this morning after a long holiday weekend. school now in session. so we definitely have a start of our fall traffic pattern. traffic is backed up beyond the west grand overcrossing in all lanes. kind of slow and go on westbound 237 for your ride towards silicon valley. a little early to see a few brake lights there as well towards zanker road. in the south bay, coming out of downtown san jose, we are still looking good on those northbound lanes of 280 approaching the 880 interchange. mass transit is all on time. once you do hit the road, remember our radio partners, kcbs 740-am and 106.9-fm. that's your traffic. let's get a check on your forecast with lawrence. >> all right, elizabeth. yeah, the sun coming up here in the bay area, but on a much cooler day outside as yeah, looking good from mount vaca here. you have nice clear skies in the interior valleys but you know what? at the coast we have already seen low clouds and fo make a
6:44am
return. a big change in weather around the bay area as the temperatures that were hot yesterday will come bay down. right now we have patchy fog at the coast. patchy fog out moving inside the bay. mostly clear in the interior valleys. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. not a big change there from yesterday. but by the afternoon, a huge change in the temperatures. yesterday well into the 90s inland, today the 80s. inside the bay sea breeze kicking in, a lot stronger. partly cloudy skies this morning mostly sunny by the afternoon. temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. at the coast, 50s and 60s where we have 70s and 60s yesterday and you will see plenty of low clouds and fog. from one extreme to another, you have those hot temperatures showing up around the bay area yesterday, 95 livermore, 84 san francisco. big-time drop, as much as 21
6:45am
